Welcome to Friday with Friends! Are you a beach person or a mountain person?? I have to admit I thought quite a bit about this one myself:) I once posted about finally admitting I am a city girl…as “romantic” as it might seem to be a fresh-faced, country girl – I just am not. I thought somewhat the same about loving the mountains – the green open spaces, gorgeous changing leaves and fresh air…all of which are wonderful. But, if I’m honest with myself…I love the water. OK – let me clarify one thing…I do NOT swim in the ocean (gross!) but I do love the water….and being at the beach!!
I love the sound of the waves. I love the seagulls and the sandpipers. I love the sun on the horizon – and especially watching it fade out of view. I love the sand on my feet.
I also love the memories that the beach brings to mind – not only memories with my family when I was younger but wonderful times at the beach with my own little ones! My dad used to rent a huge house at the beach when our children were small and we would all spend a week together at the beach.
Here is fair-haired Tyler enjoying the beach from my favorite spot……under the umbrella. I know its goofy – I love the beach but not the sun! True. Give me a huge beach umbrella and a huge cooler for cold drinks (make mine tea) and I’m fine with the beach. But really it is simply being by the water that I love!
This picture is also from the beach – down by the marina…which makes me feel every bit as relaxed, happy and peaceful as the ocean does. This is Hilton Head – definitely one of my favorite places to be! Hubbie and I love to dream – its fun! – and our dreams always include a spot at Hilton Head….
If you are joining us today – be sure to let me know and I will link you in!! Have a wonderful Friday, friends!!
